Christian development agencies, mission organizations, educational institutions and churches who want to have people come to know Christ and deepen their relationship of discipleship with Him, have a struggle on their hands:  how do they know if they are having this kind of spiritual impact, and how do they know whether they are being as faithful and effective as they can be in this area?

This introductory chapter of “Towards an Understanding and Practice of Spiritual Metrics: Measuring Spiritual Impact Faithfully and Productively in  Christian Development Agencies, Missions Organizations, Schools, and Churches” frames an exploration of these questions and was shared as part of a session on Spiritual Metrics at an Accord Network Conference in November 2015.
